Analysis of factors predictive of survival based on 49 patients with systemic Wegener's granulomatosis and prospective follow-up.
OBJECTIVES This prospective study attempted to determine factors predictive of survival in systemic Wegener's granulomatosis (WG) based on 49 patients. Patients and methods. All patients hadExpand
Effects of oral and transdermal estrogen/progesterone regimens on blood coagulation and fibrinolysis in postmenopausal women. A randomized controlled trial.
Oral estrogen/progesterone replacement therapy may result in coagulation activation and increased fibrinolytic potential, whereas opposed transdermal estrogen appears without any substantial effects on hemostasis. Expand
Resistance profile and cross‐resistance of HIV‐1 among patients failing a non‐nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor‐containing regimen *
The objectives were to determine the resistance profile and the rate of cross‐resistance in HIV‐1 infected patients failing an efavirenz or a nevirapine or a nevirapine then efavirenz containingExpand
Association of Gag cleavage sites to protease mutations and to virological response in HIV-1 treated patients.
These results evoke the pertinence to introduce some mutations found in the Gag CS in the algorithms used for the interpretation of resistance testing. Expand
[NADIS 2000, development of an electronic medical record for patients infected by HIV, HBV and HCV].
The activation and input methods of NADIS 2000 are user friendly and the physicians find it rapidly easy to use and new functional aspects are being developed as well as its use in other hospital departments. Expand
Discontinuation of secondary prophylaxis against disseminated Mycobacterium avium complex infection and toxoplasmic encephalitis.
Outcomes for patients infected with human immunodeficiency virus who received highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) and had stopped receiving secondary prophylaxis against toxoplasmic encephalitis or disseminated Mycobacterium avium complex infection are retrospectively studied. Expand
Outcome of kidney transplant recipients with previous human herpesvirus-8 infection.
The low graft survival and the high prevalence of KS within the studied population of HHV-8+ transplant recipients are strong arguments for systematic screening of HHv-8 serologic features before transplantation, especially in patients of African origin. Expand
Population correlates of coagulation factor VII. Importance of age, sex, and menopausal status as determinants of activated factor VII.
The results show that FVII activation is associated with CHD risk factors, and suggest that the dramatic rise in CHD incidence in postmenopausal women as well as the cardioprotective effect of estrogen may be mediated through FVII and blood coagulation. Expand
Efficacy of a twice-daily antiretroviral regimen containing 100 mg ritonavir/400 mg indinavir in HIV-infected patients
RTV/IDV (100/400 mg bid) yields significantly higher IDV plasma Cmin and lower IDV Cmax values relative to the standard IDV regimen, thereby improving both tolerability and efficacy. Expand
Persistent low viral load on antiretroviral therapy is associated with T cell-mediated control of HIV replication
Persistently low viral replication (<10 000 copies/ml) during ART stimulates high frequencies of HIV-specific CD4 and CD8 T cells compared to full virus suppression or complete ART failure, and the association of high anti-HIV activity with large numbers of AIDS-specific T cells contribute to the control of viral replication.
